MEXICO - REPUBLIC
The reign of Joseph Napoleon is an opportunity for Hispanic America to shake off the Spanish yoke and revolt. The Mexican Revolution began in 1810 and actually lasts until the proclamation of the Republic in 1823. The Treaty of Guadaloupe, May 2, 1848, Mexico gives Texas and California in the United States, nearly half of its territory. Thirty years later, General Porfirio Diaz, who campaigned on the Liberal side against the French intervention in Mexico, took power in 1876 and held until 1911. During these 35 years of dictatorship, the country opened its doors to foreign capital, but the economy is modernizing social inequalities are increasingly large.
